DynamicsInc (offering a Computerized Credit Card):
Picture, you having a couple of Visa cards with a bank, along with a checking and savings account, with that same bank. But, instead of three or four separate cards, you will only need one. And you can withdraw cash, or charge and make purchases to any of those four accounts, merely by pressing a button on the card. And as I held one in my hands, it is the same weight and density of any single bank card we use today. Furthermore, Dynamics Inc, producers of these ePlate cards, can also issue you a Visa card. Of course, there are some limitations, such as, you cannot have accounts sourced from multiple banks, on the same card. (www.dynamicsinc.com)

No one will argue the importance of children in society, and the need for parental guidance of what they are exposed to. This particular entity provides ‘apps’ for kids, marketed as ones a parent will be approving of.

I had the opportunity to try my hand at one of these apps, during the interview. (www.fingerprintplay.com)
From a business perspective, you might fairly conclude the ‘app world’ is on the move. Accordingly though, there’s a discussion taking place which is looking closely at the current business model, considering the growth of internet users and consumer expectations.
